    I think the Bing Lee deal is still running and cheaper. I might be wrong.

    Edit: nevermind looks like that's 4 packs only.

    I started using Ikea Ladda and have never looked back at Eneloops.
    $7.99 for a pack of 4 and is suspected of being rebadged Eneloop Pros

    I read somewhere that the higher rated LADDA bats are the same as eneloop pros. (Get the made in japan LADDA batteries)
    Much cheaper as well.

    Link above for AAs x8 actually takes you to AAAs x8.
    And the AAs incur the $6.95 postage fee. Makes it not such a great deal on the AAs.:(

    EDIT: Scrap that - tried it again - the 8 x AAs didn't add postage this time.
    Deal on!

      Thanks, fixed the link.
      For some reason searching the item and finding it doesn’t apply free postage. You have to go through the free postage deals page or use the links provided.

        Thanks for your guidance. It's such an odd way to do it - you'd think clicking any link to add the items to the cart would get free shipping, but it seems only this way ensures free delivery.

    Wow I can't remember the last time I saw eneloops on the front page

  •  

    Quick question, can these be charged with energiser chargers?

  •  

    Looking at the IKEA LADDA: https://www.ikea.com/au/en/catalog/products/70303876/

    They actually do seem better thanks to user:ntb video

    They do have a way lower cycle count of 500 though but for a torch I think I will get extended use out of them of over a year anyway (apparently that's all they should last?)

    SO my question is, what is the best and cheapest charger for these and where do I get it from?

    •  

      I would need a charger too and the Catch deal has none. I wonder what the Ladda $15 charger is like? Chargers have been discussed on a number of occasions on OzB before - there was a post on Zanflare C4 charger from Alibaba back in Nov. There are a number of other brands such as Nitecore that have also been mentioned. Update: Searched the Catch website and they do list several chargers, notably several Nitecore ones, eg i4 Intellicharger but at $52.50 seems a bit expensive.

      •  

        I remember looking this up recently, and the consensus seemed to be that the Ladda Charger is a solid, basic charger, great value in the sub $30 category.

        •  

          I recommend the Nitecore D2/D4 for $26/$36 delivered via eBay. Ladda charger only $20 or $15 for IKEA family members, but Ladda is a super basic charger.

          D2 & D4 can take 12v DC which is handy to charge all of your torches' 18650 batteries while on the go. 😁

          •  

            @raymosaurus: Thanks for all the advice guys, my torch just takes AA's so probably don't need a D4 but sounds like given the price difference it's better to get a D2 than the LADDA charger.

    I love my eneloops, but I'm thinking of adding LADDA's to my collection next. Eneloops are getting more expensive and not as good quality as the Sanyo Japanese versions (though still plenty good quality). The LADDA's are much cheaper and reports suggesting they could be rebadged Enloops anyway. Worth trying! $8 for 4.

    •  

      Ikea Laddas are eneloop pros. All these batteries made in japan are Low Self-Discharge nickel–metal hydride are made in one facility run by FDK Corporation. So if its Made in Japan it will be from this factory.

      for the Ladda AAAs go for the 900mAH, more expensive but last much longer. But if just using for kids toys or remotes then the cheaper Ladda AAAs are ok.

    •  

      LADDA 2450 built same as 900, just more capacity right?

      • +1 vote

        The 900 is AAA
        The 2450 is AA

          Ah, silly me lol

          •  

            @Tachyon: Yeah what he said.

            The theory is, they are Eneloop Pros relabelled. I don't think this have been confirmed officially but I've seen tests where they measure identically. Whether LADDA batches remain consistent since then is another matter but I think it's safe to say they are a smart buy for the price.

        They do delivery, plus you get a discount by joining their free member program.

        Just got 5 X 4 AA for less than $50 delivered.

        Haha, don't want to get lost in there and killed by a minotaur. Otherwise LADDA is just as good, cheaper and readily available all year round.

    Noob question: Can you charge other rechargeable batteries like Energizer/Duracell in an Eneloop charger?

  •  

    If you have Costco membership, I think they are selling $39 for 8xAA and 4xAAA plus a standard 4 slots charger. Sometimes they do go on sale for around $33

    Hi everyone, I am looking for some AA rechargables for my mother who recently was overcharging 2 batteries and they were burning hot to touch and almost melting. I told her to stop using that particular charger and am going to recycle the melted batteries.

    Just had a quick question regarding Eneloops.
    What is the particular appeal about them? That they are environmentally friendly?
    I am aware they have long shelf-life and are good for high-drain devices, do they perform well in low drain as well?

    I am looking more at Amazonbasics silver, or Ikea LADDA. Both 2450-2400mah closer to my mothers current 2600mah Aldi rechargables.
    Here is the video I watched comparing batteries.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0A1GvQ40j0Q

    I have also often read that Ikea LADDA come from Panasonic just like eneloops. Are Amazonbasics Silver, Panasonic too? (they claim silver is made in Japan, and Black in China).

    One conclusion from the video I think, (leaving room for bad batches/good batches from all manufactures) is that Panasonic are giving the same quality batteries to Ikea LADDA and Eneloop. Amazonbasics silver also performs quite well, but the capacity is different. I wonder if they are Panasonic too..

    EDIT: just realised I cannot find Amazonbasics batteries on Amazon AU yet..

      Hi just discovered and figured out the 'forums' section, and by clicking forums>electrical category then typing 'eneloop' in "Search this forum" I discovered a few threads about them that answered my question.

      So to answer my own question, they work well in low-drain devices because of the long shelf-life (low self-discharge).
      As stated by 'redslert' here https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/177723#comment-2479160

      And after a bit of research I can confirm that Amazonbasics AA Silver are the same as Eneloops Pro.
      Also learned that Regular Eneloops(1900mah) are rated at 1500 cycles, compared to Eneloop Pro(2500mah)[Amazonbasics silver] are only 500 cycles.

      ATTENTION: =In the past= Amazonbasics white (1900mah) were confirmed identical to Eneloops from Japan, but that is no longer the case, they come from china now and are of poor quality.

      SO im leaning more towards the cheaper 1900mah Eneloops now. The lower capacity can be made up for by low self-discharge & the number of charge cycles(1500 cycles, compared to 300-500 cycles). *ALSO fast charging reduces the number of cycles. So good idea to get the cheaper/older slow charger and charge overnight(13 hours charge time?).

      FOR THOSE INTERESTED IN ENELOOP PRO'S:
      The prices on the Amazonbasics Silver 8 pack(500 cycles)shipped from the US are not bad(https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-High-Capacity-Rechargeab...)[AUD$24 shipped inc import tax]compared to Eneloop Pro in AU [$47 delivered from GadgetCity].
      If you dont mind about warranty etc, I think its alternative for those who do not live close to an Ikea (I have yet to do a proper price comparison[fuel/time cost vs shipping cost].)

      •  

        Also Ikea LADDA(2450mah) and Amazonbasics silver(2400mah) and Eneloop Pro(2550mah) all have different stated capacities, but in tests the capacities are identical (all close to 2550mah)
        So the stated capacities are just to separate the products with marketing.

  •  

    You might find this interesting, turns out eneloops are a big waste of money https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0A1GvQ40j0Q

    •  

      Just to note the Eneloop in the video is standard Eneloop (1900mah).
      The Ikea LADDA and Amazonbasics silver are 2450-2400mah, so more comparable to the Eneloop Pro's (2500mah).
